VIDEO: Groundhog on fairway delays Phil Mickelson

Posted at 10:43 AM by Jeff Ritter | Categories: Phil Mickelson, U.S. Open

ARDMORE, Pa. -- We should've guessed that Punxsutawney Phil is a fan of Phil Mickelson.

The left-hander was preparing to hit his second shot into the green on the sixth hole on Friday afternoon, when a large -- one might even say plump -- groundhog sauntered across the fairway and into the crowd. We're unsure if the groundhog saw his own shadow, or what that would even signify when it happens in June, but Mickelson went on to par the hole and shoot 72 for the round.
